We value our members of the academic community and we invite you to potentially be a part of the 2019 FPA Annual Conference.

What is Call for Papers?

The Journal of Financial Planning invites you to submit extended abstracts (1,000 to 1,500 words) of unpublished research papers on all topics of financial planning in consideration for presentation at the 2019 FPA Annual Conference, Oct. 16-18, 2019 in Minneapolis.

A blind peer review process will choose nine pieces of unpublished research to be presented in 15-minute time slots.

  • Call for Papers closes May 15

Last year in Chicago, these sessions were standing-room only and were helpful for planners and academics to:

Learn what topics are at the forefront of financial planning research

Ask researchers questions

Provide valuable input that researchers can utilize in developing full research papers

Some of the research chosen has also subsequently been published in the Journal of Financial Planning after the conference.

The chosen presenters will be eligible for two $500 cash prizes for the two best research presentations.
